Menstrual Blood Stem Cells May Significantly Increase Yield of Cord Blood Stem Cells
Date:5/5/2009

Cryo-Cell Presents Study at International Society of Cellular Therapy (ISCT) Demonstrating Potential to Expand Cord Blood Stem Cells for Possible Utilization in Transplantation

OLDSMAR, Fla., May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cryo-Cell International, Inc. announced results of a new study showing that adding menstrual blood stem cells (MenSCs) to stem cells from umbilical cord blood expands the number of progenitor cells (cells that grow into mature blood cells). This expansion technique could broaden the therapeutic use of the cells and provide a more readily available supply of stem cells for transplantation. These data will be presented today at the International Society of Cellular Therapy's Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif.

Stem cells found in cord blood have been proven to treat more than 70 life-threatening illnesses, including leukemia, neuroblastoma, lymphoma and sickle cell anemia. Since the first successful cord blood stem cell transplant in 1988, cord blood stem cells have been used in more than 10,000 transplants worldwide. Cord blood stem cells are readily available, and are easy to collect and cryopreserve. Umbilical cord blood, however, can only be collected at birth and does not yield a sufficient number of stem cells typically required for transplantation - a single cord blood collection yields only enough stem cells for a child or smaller adult. Given these limitations, research has increasingly focused on identifying ways to expand or enhance cord blood stem cells.

Research Summary

The studies were performed by using harvested cells from menstrual blood and cord blood cells collected after childbirth and processed to reduce the number of red blood cells. MenSC samples were obtained using a menstrual cup and were transferred to a laboratory for processing and cryopreservation. Culture results demonstrated a significant increase in the functional capacity of the
